Carnaby Street Collaborates with The Rolling Stones for Christmas
The Rolling Stones will collaborate with Carnaby, the pedestrianized shopping street in London, for its 2012 Christmas installations in celebration of the group’s 50th Anniversary. The Christmas public art will consist of huge 3D spheres suspended throughout Carnaby Street containing gold and silver vinyl records emblazoned with the bands iconic artwork and album covers. The Carnaby arches will also be dressed with the Stones’ iconic tongue and lips logo. These outdoor installations will tell a visual story from the band’s creation in the 1960s to the present day.
The installations will launch on November 8 and will be in place until January 6. In addition there will be a Rolling Stones pop up shop on Carnaby Street that will sell limited edition apparel and prints, plus the band’s new greatest hits collection GRRR!, set for release on November 12.
‘We are delighted to be working with the most famous band in the world. They have been instrumental in defining popular culture and epitomise the essence of Carnaby’s music heritage,” says
Simon Quayle, Director, Shaftesbury.
